In June 1914, a Serbian nationalist assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria in Sarajevo.  An intensification of threats and deployment orders followed the incident which led to the outbreak of World War I, which pitted Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire (the Central Powers) against Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy and Japan, later joined by the USA (the Allied Powers). The four years of the Great War (as it was then known) saw unprecedented levels of carnage and destruction. By the time World War I ended, more than 9 million soldiers had been killed and 21 million wounded.

To mark this Anniversary, the coins in this series have the title ‘We Will Remember Them’ and reflect the more poignant stories of World War I. Each coin also features a Poppy to remember those who lost their lives.

The first of the two British Virgin Islands designs features the Edith Cavell Memorial in Norwich, England with a nurse in the foreground. Edith Cavell was a British nurse who is celebrated for saving the lives of soldiers from both sides without distinction. The second design features Lawrence of Arabia on a camel against a background of Aqaba.

Available in Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver, each precious metal coin has been carefully struck four times and feature frosted high relief sculpting against a mirror brilliant background. Each coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. The coins are also available with the Poppy on each coin produced in full colour.
